First press renders of Google Pixel Fold emerge

We had already seen some footage of the Google Pixel Fold, by no official material until now. However, thanks to Evan Blass, we now have the first press material of Google's first foldable.

Until now, we weren't impressed with the Pixel Fold. The device has thick screen bezels, making it look dated. Yet, in the images below, the device looks quite attractive. Furthermore, Evan points out the advantage of large screen bezels; you have room to rest a finger.

Specifications Pixel Fold

There are no thick screen bezels on the outside. Instead, we see thin bezels there with strongly rounded corners. According to Blass, the front screen measures 5.8 inches with a resolution of 2092 x 1080 pixels, a 120Hz display, and 1550 peak brightness. In other words, decent specs for a display.

The inside screen has a diagonal of 7.6 inches, the same size as that of the Samsung Fold 4. The resolution reaches 2208 x 1840 pixels with a 120Hz refresh rate and 1450 peak brightness—no camera behind the display here, but an old-fashioned one above it.

Pixel Fold cameras

On the camera front, according to Evan, we should expect a 48+10.8+10.8MP setup with the highest megapixels belonging to the primary camera. The other two cameras are a 121.1° ultra-wide angle and a 5x telephoto lens. The front selfie camera counts an unusual 9.5 megapixels, and inside a more regular 8 megapixels.

The Google Pixel Fold uses a familiar chipset; the Tensor G2 that we also find in the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro. It is possible that the Tensor G3 is not ready yet and will only debut in the Pixel 8.

The device will also get IPX8 waterproofing, a 4812 mAh large battery, and will come out in Obsidian Black and Porcelain White. The announcement will likely occur on May 10 during Google's annual I/O event.
